Do you have what it takes to work onboard some of the world’s most exclusive yachts? Whether you have a love for the sea, enjoy hospitality or are mechanically inclined, working onboard a yacht could be a rewarding career choice. A career in yachting brings you the opportunity to set sail to new and exciting ports, work at a 5 star level of service with people from around the world and enjoy the camaraderie unique to the yachting industry.
There are many advantages to working at sea, but working on a yacht is not all about fun and games and does require teamwork. Working on a yacht brings long, demanding, strenuous work days. You will live and work with the same group of people which can at times be stressful to even the most experienced crew member. You will be away from family and loved ones for long periods of time. However if you are an adventurous spirit who is looking for a profession that is constantly evolving, the yachting lifestyle is a one-of-a-kind experience.
Common positions in yachting include Captain, Mate, Engineer, Chef, Steward (ess), and Deckhand. We invite you to navigate through our website for a job description on each of these positions. Think a job in yachting is for you? Follow the simple steps below and you will be on your way!
